Introduction to Appraisal & Evaluation with Prof Graeme Roy, University of Glasgow 

Effective evaluation and appraisal are crucial elements of the project and programme development lifecycle and should form part of the development and planning of an intervention from the start. They help to inform how scarce public resources should be invested; assist in measuring the anticipated impacts and returns; and support the responsible and transparent management of these resources.

This course provides an accessible introduction into economic appraisal and evaluation, helping participants to understand key concepts, as well as recognising good practice and pitfalls.

The course assumes no formal training in economics but would ideally suit people working – or with some experience – in economic development or an economic policy environment.

This course supports those involved in the development of HM Treasury Green Book compliant Business Cases (“five case model”) for City and Regional Deals. During the session we will touch on some of the recent criticisms of the Green Book methodology, including how it interacts with issues such as the levelling-up agenda and grand challenges such as Climate Change. We’ll discuss some alternative approaches and where adjustments can be made.

Also suitable for those operating at a more strategic level where best value and financial accountability is key.

 

The course takes place over a 2-week period on MSTeams.
